According to his record label, Gracie Productions, St. Louis rapper J-Kwon has gone missing.
J-Kwon, who released the hit single “Tipsy” in 2004, hasn’t been reachable by anyone from his label for the last month.
The folks at Gracie have set up a Twitter account (@WhereIsJKwon) which will provide updates.
“J-Kwon is a big part of the Gracie family, and we are obviously increasingly worried and want to make sure he is ok,” says Gracie Productions CEO/President Tony Bucher. “We’ve already received thousands of emails from fans and supporters who are worried about J-Kwon, and we want everyone to know how much we appreciate the love and support. If anyone has seen J-Kwon or has access to him, please let him know we are worried about him, and to please let us know everything is ok.”
Y’all smell that?
Smells a little fishy to me.
J-Kwon has a new album dropping soon, and the twitter page doesn’t seem to provide much in the way of updates except for a link to download his new single.
We’re calling BS on this one, and a poorly executed marketing plan by the folks at Gracie.
One day after going public with the story, Gracie Productions says that J-Kwon finally got in touch with them and he is doing well.
Although J-Kwon declined making a statement himself, Dorian Washington, co-CEO of Gracie and CEO of D.Wash Management released the following statement:
“I am very happy to let everyone know that I personally spoke with J-Kwon today, and he is okay. He’d like to send a sincere apology to his friends and everyone who showed concern this week. He was taking some time to himself as he sometimes does, not realizing that people would start to worry after a while. A few days out of touch versus a month is quite a difference. Right now he just wants to keep doing what he’s doing, and will be more available for those who care about him. We thank you again for your outreach, and we are relieved to know he’ll be alright.”
